    So far as I know...the computer looks at the coolant sensor at key-on and knows it's cold. No need to push the pedal.

    I suppose now I'm gonna have to look at the owner's manual for my '88 K1500 for cold-start instructions.

    Update: Problem fixed. Took some time due to general life getting in the way but got it.

    Ran a scan code and was getting 3 error codes

    35 IAC, 42 Ignition Control and 54 Fuel Pump Relay. Replaced all 3 and problem solved.

    Now just out of curiosity and education during some researching, would something like the Fitech 30003 be of any upgrade or just a lateral move and waste of time any $$

    Thanks again everyone for answering.... A dozen thoughts are always better than one.

    I'm gonna say that would be a lot of money spent to fix something that ain't broke.

    At 6,000 RPM the 5.7 only needs ~607 CFM Theoretical.

    If you want to save some $$$, keep the TB, get a dynamic EFI EBL Flash-II and a WBO2 sensor, it'll tune itself probably better than the Holley.

    The drawback there is that he has a '95 and the EBL does not have E-transmission functionality.
